Vail’s Legendary Terrain: Northwoods

Feb. 22, 2017

What makes Northwoods Legendary?

One of the most popular areas of Vail Mountain, Northwoods offers easy access to some of the best terrain on Vail Mountain. This area can be ridden all day! The lift ride is quick, is the first to open, and the last to close for the day. Speaking of lift rides (pending Forest Service approval), Chair #11 will be upgraded to a six pack for the 2017-18 season, reducing wait times and increasing uphill capacity by 25%. For the early morning powder seekers, Northwoods is the place to go. It offers terrain of varying steepness and difficulty, and suitable for all types of skiing, whether you enjoy the open fields of Northstar, or the tree skiing in Snag Park.
